Coming Soon: French Bistro, Crossfit Praxis Gym, and Buffalo Exchange Thrift Store

Every day I read about more restaurants, bars, and shops coming to DC!  Today a few of note were announced for Logan Circle / U Street, as reported by Urban Turf, Washington Business Journal, and the Prince of Petworth.

Here’s the rundown:

French Bistro – 14th and Q Streets NW.  We can never have too many French Bistros, and what a great location and building.

Crossfit Praxis Gym – 14th Street and Florida Avenue NW.   Many DC neighborhoods need gyms, so great news.

Buffalo Exchange – 14th Street, just south of Rhode Island Ave NW.  I don’t know much about Buffalo Exchange, but it sounds pretty trendy.
